Imagine that folks are sitting around hoping and waiting for Blu to finally release his official Warner Bros debut album for what seems like years. Instead he produces an entire album for his boy Sene, guest appears on various other projects, drops an album he once dropped for free and originally claimed would never be released in proper physical form and he drops an album via Bandcamp on one of the busiest album release days in recent Hip Hop history (for the slow May 17th was an absolute zoo. I’ll run down all of today’s releases at some point today).
Blu’s LP “je s u s ▲” came out of absolutely nowhere but it boasts production from Blu himself (credited as God Lee Barnes), The Alchemist, Madlib, 9th Wonder, Knxwledge, Hezekiah & Nathan. Hopefully between having a remastered & mixed proper version of “Her Favorite Colo(u)r” and “je s u s ▲” can satiate Blu fans as they wait for him to drop his highly anticipated “NoYork” LP. Based on what I hear here? I can wait and I can’t simultaneously. Can Y’ALL, though? Shout out to Jonathan Kim. Those that know, know why.
